North America’s biggest fastener show is back. Torque takes you through the key points
Running over 30 October – 1 November 2018, the International Fastener Expo (formerly NIFMSE) is now in its 37th year.
This is its first year at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre (it was at the Las Vegas Convention Centre last year and the Sands for a number of years before then). It seems the show has fixed on its current venue – the organisers have secured the Mandalay as the IFE venue through to 2020
Trade tariffs have been the hot topic for US importers this year. The show organisers have lined up a top speaker to tackle the subject – Vanessa Sciarra, Vice President for Legal Affairs and Trade and Investment Policy at the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC), will hold a seminar aiming to clarify and understand the US administration’s trade policy, including the tariffs being implemented under Sections 232 and 301
